Thermoplastic splinting is a treatment modality used by neurological physiotherapists to maintain muscle length and range of movement
. It involves the use of mouldable heated plastic that is made to fit the individual and worn to keep the arm, leg or trunk in a certain position. It is very useful when individuals are unable to stretch the muscle independently due to weakness
. At Physio.co.uk, one of our specialist therapists will assess your eligibility for thermoplastic splinting and discuss the advantages and benefits of this useful treatment technique.
